The Hong Kong Police Museum showcases a display tracing the development and history of the Royal Hong Kong Police Force since 1844. The main exhibit encompasses a significant number of artefacts from uniforms and firearms to historical archives and photographs. Other exhibits look at the major factions which have influenced the status quo such as the triad societies and narcotics trade, including a unique look at how heroin is produced. The museum also provides insight into the dedication of the officers who have served within this elite force. There is a pleasant park next door to the museum ideally suited for shade and refreshments.
